This is an older property. The new owner has only had it for two months. All of the staff bends over backwards to make your stay pleasant. The rooms have new beds, new televisions, coffee makers with several favors of coffee. The rooms also have ironing boards with steam iron, extra pillows, a couch or easy chair. In the lobby... More

I heard great things, including a very reasonable rate. But, like the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for!" Too bad, the front desk fella was professional and stand up. The ONE thing that can make or break a hotel is cleanliness. This was a blatant disregard of it... PLEASE SEE PICS

We styed at this hotel for a Notre Dame football game weekend. The price was reasonable with no major complaints about the hotel. A few cons were there is no elevator to get to the 2nd floor, our phone did not work in the room, we asked for additional towels and never received them. Also it is a little confusing... More

Me and my Wife have been staying at the Garden Inn for two weeks while our home is having some remodeling done. From the moment we walked in we were treated like family. The prices are better than any around this area. We checked. The room was very clean and if needed anything all we had to do was ask.... More

I was traveling for business and there was a convention going on in the city and this was the only hotel with available rooms ( I now understand why). After checking in, when I got to my room I could not open the door. The light on the lock would turn green but the lock was not opening. I went... More

This is a traditional motel that was built in the 1960's. It used to be a Ramada Inn but now is in foreclosure and is a "bank owned" property. A Bennigan's Restaurant attached to the hotel is now closed. The hot tub in the pool area is closed "permanently" as it leaks from the bottom. The best things about this... More

I live in Elkhart and just wanted to have a night with the girls. The guys remodeling the part of the hotel were there as well that night smelling like straight up alcohol. The lady at the desk was rude about giving us towels (which were big enough for a two year old at the most) and she was just... More

We reserved two rooms, 224 and 229. Neither had hot water, when we asked about this at the front desk we were told that they were low on hot water due to excessive use the night before. Room 224 had a non working phone. Room 229 has a broken window, the rolls of toilet paper were stored on the bathroom... More
